    Mathematical morphology is a well established methodology for the analysis of geometrical structures. Its theoretical roots are based on set theory, topology, stochastic geometry, lattice theory, nonlinear partial differential equations, etc. Mathematical morphology is applied to process digital images and other forms of spatial structures as graphs, surface meshes, data clouds, etc.

    Mathematical Morphology - Theory and Applications (MMTA) is an Open Access electronic journal publishing either purely theoretical advances, or new ways of applying mathematical morphology to real-world problems.
    MMTA serves also as a forum open to other related mathematical image processing approaches as discrete geometry, topological imaging and scale-space models.

    Accepted papers are published on ongoing basis. The journal publishes:

    • Research Articles
    • Survey Papers
    • Pedagogical Papers
    • Short Communications
    • Letters to the Editor, Amendments, and Commentaries.
